 The staff of the Anderson County Coroner’s Office continues to work around the clock as deaths continue to mount up, with causes running the spectrum from accidental gunshots to an inmate death at the Anderson County Detention Center, to sadly, the death of another child.
On February 29, the Sheriff’s and the Coroner’s offices responded to 1010 Crestview Road in response to an accidental gunshot wound. Jah Emere Ohije Golden, a twenty two year old male, was declared  dead from the wound to the abdomen. An investigation is underway, but the preliminary finding was that the shooting was accidental.
On Feb. 29, an eleven month old female arrived at Kids Care in Anderson, where staff attempted to resuscitate the child before calling for transport to the AnMed Health Medical facility, where she was pronounced dead at 6:00 p.m. The death is currently under investigation.
On March 1, Dylan Cycle Burgess, a twenty five year old male, was struck by a motor vehicle near the intersection of Amy Street and Highway 29 South. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the vehicle was reportedly on his way home from work. No charges were filed in the incident, which is being investigated by the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
On March 2, during a routine check, Anderson County Detention Center officers found an unresponsive inmate. James Terry White, a fifty nine year old male, was pronounced dead at 12:13 a.m. White was alone in his cell at the time. His death was ruled as natural causes, due to underlying medical conditions. He had been in custody since January 9 on charges of disorderly conduct and a probation violation. SLED is investigating the incident.
